Studying forPRMU Master's Degree Program in Clinical Psychology

First, studying for PRMU Master's Degree Program in Clinical Psychology implies implementing a practice-oriented approach. Modern theoretical knowledge should become reliable support for our students to apply in their work. At the same time, getting experience in providing psychological assistance to various categories of citizens is an equally important part of training. Practical knowledge and skills when studying for a Master's Degree Program are developed through cooperation with the leading practical training facilities both in Nizhny Novgorod and the region and beyond.

  • Future masters are now completing their practical training at the Psychological Assistance Hotline #MYVMESTE @dobroinrussia
  • From March 2020 through the present, the activities of volunteer psychologists within the #MyVmeste all-Russian campaign have been coordinated by @inna.silenok
  • The Institute of Clinical Psychology expresses its deep gratitude to Inna Kazimirovna Silenok for an opportunity to lead master’s degree students’ practice via the #MyVmeste hotline.
  • Inna Kazimirovna is an incredibly open and friendly person. She welcomed our request, undertook to prepare master students to work at the hotline, and has been supporting them throughout their studies.
  • Practice via the hotline is an invaluable experience for future specialists working with people who need psychological help most.
  • Eight directions are currently available over the MyVmeste hotline. Every day, operators receive tens of thousands of applications for help to the elderly, the persons with reduced mobility, medical workers, employees of non-governmental social institutions and other people in need, give information support to citizens in response to the spread of COVID-19, and provide psychological support.
  • More than 400 volunteer psychologists work 24 hours a day 7 days a week assisting all those who apply to cope with panic attacks and other crisis states.
  • The work is being carried out throughout the entire territory of the Russian Federation.

Experimental Biological Clinic includes two vivaria: Vivarium of the Central Research Laboratory and Vivarium of the University Hospital

Vivarium of the Central Research Laboratory of FSBEI HE PRMU

The vivarium was created as part of the Central Scientific Research Laboratory in 1975 to be completely renovated in 2015.

The vivarium has been certified by the State Veterinary Service of the Nizhny Novgorod Region.

Purpose of the Vivarium of the Central Research Laboratory

1. Keeping conventional animals, cleanliness code 2 (MD), in barrier-type rooms (rats, mice, rabbits, and guinea pigs).

2. The breeding and maintenance of SPF level animals.

The total area of the vivarium is 500 sq. m

It has been designed for 3 000 mice and rats, 60 rabbits and guinea pigs.

Fundamental and applied biomedical and pharmacological research is carried out at the vivaria, alongside with the development and implementation of approaches to surgical, pharmacological and environmental modelling of pathological conditions in humans, the testing of new drugs in compliance with GLP rules, and medical devices.

Fundamental Directions

  • Behavioural and genetic phenotyping of research animals
  • Research into the molecular mechanisms of etiology and pathogenesis of socially significant human diseases
  • Research into the mechanisms of stress related conditions based on experimental modeling of hypoxia, ischemia, neurodegenerative diseases, epilepsy, schizophrenia, cardiovascular diseases, etc.
  • Processing requests
  • Ensuring academic process

Vivarium activities area is managed according to the principle of clean rooms.

The vivarium is divided into two zones – the ‘clean’ and ‘dirty’ ones – and includes:

  • a ‘clean’ corridor
  • sanitary inspection room
  • quarantine sections
  • sections for keeping and breeding animals
  • disinfection and washing department
  • section for storing animal foodstuffs
  • premises for clinical, biological and preclinical research, and surgical operations on laboratory animals

Each section is equipped with stainless steel racks and animal cages that meet the requirements of GLP, and IVS-systems for keeping SPF mice.

A supply and exhaust ventilation unit equipped with automatic temperature and humidity control provides the premises withair supply and exhaust.

There is a 12-hour automatic day-night light pattern with red lighting installed at night.

All the materials (cages, water bowls, bedding material, etc.) enter animal housing sections through the pass boxes from the disinfection and washing section only after being cleaned, washed and sterilized.
